Why Upstart

I've been cultivating a vision for a Google Glass application that will revolutionize healthcare.

Upon securing Upstart funding, I will leave my current consulting role at MC10 and focus exclusively on:
(1) Developing a business plan for my Google Glass healthcare application
(2) Finding passionate co-founders and advisers

Upstart funding will allow me to support myself through this process, up to the point when my venture obtains seed funding.
